As reported on Balidiscovery.com [‘Fore’ For the Kids] a Bali Junior Golf Community Ballesteros Foundation Tournament is set to be held at the [Bali Handara Kosaido Country Club] in Bedugul, Bali April 7-8, 2012.
Despite recent landslides near the course, the general manager of the Bali Handara course, Mark Isley, has confirmed that his team is working tirelessly to make sure the course is ready for this prestigious golfing event in support.
Commenting on the preparations for the tournament and the current condition of the course, Isley said: "We will be more than ready to host the much anticipated Seve Ballesteros Foundation Charity Tournament and it will be a great weekend of golf for all of those who attend, you can count on it! Golf course conditions are rapidly improving with the hard work of my team along with the help and support from the nearby Pancasari village who have provided us with nearly 200 people to assist us in cleaning up the golf course, hotel grounds and roadways. It’s simply amazing what can be accomplished in such a short amount of time when a community pulls together like this."
Isley continued: "For this event and due to the repair works that need to be carried out, hole #18 will be a par 3, normally a par 5, and approximately 12 bunkers around the golf course will be declared Ground Under Repair , other than that, the course will be in excellent condition for this event. Other facilities such as our restaurants cottages and bungalows were not damaged in any way and they will be available as usual."
More than 30 registrations are now in hand with a number of young players traveling from outside Bali to participate at what is widely considered one of the world’s leading golf courses.
